Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Once showed porn movies on one screen and mainstream flms on the other. Now a family dollar store.

How could such a concept theatre work. X rated porn on one side and maybe a G or PG on the other screen. Surely,they were separated with no chance of a child slipping in a X rated movie,And what about the restrooms.
I have seen twin theatres play a X rated feature like Warhol’s “DRACULA”,but no a constant flow of adult movies.Quite,frankly i am surprized it ever went over in Houston.and i wouldn’t want to manage such a set up.

It’s true! I saw SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER & LOOKING FOR MR. GOODBAR(both rated R)here with my folks in early 1978. I was 8 and LFMG scared the hell out of me. I think it was still this way when we moved to Las Vegas in March of 1979.

Yes, this theater really did exist with this format. Houston did not have zoning in those days which led to some interesting neighbors. You’ll note on the map that this theater was virtually next door to a middle school and high school. Many a student tried the trick of buying a PG ticket and trying to sneak in the X rated side. I believe this theater shut down in the late 80’s but not quite sure on that.
